Record GVR summer camp season draws to a close » The Glacier View Ranch summer camp season winds down this weekend, leaving a long list of miracles in its wake. We served a total of 567 campers this summer. There was record attendance during several of the weeks, with 170 junior and tween campers combined in one week! The cabins were full to capacity. During Teen Camp, 113 campers attended—the largest group of teens in nearly 15 years!
The biggest miracles happened through lives being changed. Hundreds of young people requested to prepare for baptism, and five staff members were baptized in the GVR lake.
Steve Hamilton, RMC youth director, says, "The staff we were blessed with this summer will likely be the kind of staff we will look back on years from now and say, 'Remember the summer of 2014? What a summer, and what an amazing staff!'"
The final week of summer camp concluded with a week of camp at Mills Spring Ranch in Casper, Wyoming. The week at MSR is a highlight of the summer for young people from Wyoming. The conference runs a full-featured program there, following the Wyoming Camp Meeting. This is the second year that it has been run that way, and it's been a huge success.
As camp draws to a close, please join us in praying for the young people who have dedicated their hearts to Christ and are preparing to make a decision for baptism.
A radio station for Montrose » Through more than a decade of prayer and dreaming, churches from around the Montrose area are poised to launch Montrose Christian Broadcasting Corporation (MCBC) with a full-powered FM radio station to share the Adventist message with Western Slope communities. God miraculously provided the antenna and station, but the station has to be on the air and broadcasting by October 31st. To find out how you can help make this dream a reality, read the full story here.
RMC pastors and teachers prepare to meet in Denver » The Rocky Mountain Conference is planning a three-day conference for all RMC pastors and teachers.
